About Mrs Arabella Brown

Mrs Brown grew up in Kent, so always wanted to return. As their boys started to move around and toddle, she knew it was time to move from London. Mr and Mrs Brown fell in love with the property and its location the moment they came down the drive.

Mrs Arabella Brown purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Mrs Arabella Brown chose Kent

This fabulous, romantic, baby and pet friendly cottage has stunning views. Tucked away within woodland, this cottage, although rural, is only a short distance from 'civilisation'. It couldn't be more perfectly situated. A perfect get away for a 10 day break, or a long weekend. In summer, explore the countryside and finish off with a swim in the heated pool. In winter, enjoy long crisp walks and afterwards warm up in front of a log fire. Every evening take pleasure in watching the sun set over the hills.

What makes this cottage unique

'The view gets me every time. I could never tire of it.'

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful cottage for nearly 4 months and really enjoyed our stay. Our host family were very friendly and helpful and the property is maintained to a high standard. It is kept very clean and is in a wonderful location. We couldn't recommend it enough and I hope you are lucky enough to spend some time there. Ideal for family use or romantic weekends away and placed in the heart of the countryside.

Nice an cosy cottage in a rural setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is nice and cozy, perfect for three people. It is very well-maintained, we had a very warm-hearted welcome. The heated pool and the cat which awaited him every morning were much appreciated by our kid. The setting is tranquil with wonderful views especially from the master bedroom across the valley, so perfect for relaxing. Nice sun trap on the terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and modern. All facilities were well maintained. Perfect for a small family or couple with a friend / granny.
